Peace Arch State Park is a 20-acre day-use park commemorating treaties and agreements that arose from the war of 1812. The park celebrates the unguarded United States
/Canadian border that stretches from the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. The park features horticultural exhibitions and the giant, commemorative, concrete arch that straddles the border of the two nations. The countries co-maintain the monument.
Vast lawns, gardens and the magnificent Peace Arch on the border of the United States and Canada
make this a uniquely beautiful park. More than 20,000 flowers are planted annually on the grounds. The park offers magnificent views of Point Roberts and Vancouver Island.Activities include the annual United States/Canadian "Hands Across The Border" celebration attended by more than 30,000 visitors. There is an annual "Art In The Park" exhibition May through September.
